15 injured in clashes ahead of Tripura colleges polls

Monday November 21, 2011 09:28:47 PM, IANS

Agartala: Tension has gripped the colleges in Tripura after 15 students were injured in clashes between various groups following the announcement of students' council polls slated to be held Dec 2.

"At least 15 students were injured in clashes between factions of students in several colleges during the past three days," a state higher education department official told reporters here Monday.

"Following the incidents of clashes, huge security forces have been deployed in and around all the colleges in different parts of Tripura," the official said.

The state's ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) backed Students Federation of India (SFI) and opposition Congress' student wing National Students Union of India (NSUI) have filed complaints with police against each other.

The state higher education department Saturday announced elections to students' councils in 15 colleges across Tripura.

"Polling would be held for altogether 527 seats in 15 students' councils on Dec 2 in Tripura. Necessary notification was issued on Nov 19 for the elections," the official said.

Of the total of 527 seats in the 15 councils, the SFI had won 525 seats in 2010.

"There is always tension and clashes in the run-up to college council polls and this year would also not be an exception. We would keep a close watch to maintain the situation in the educational complexes under control," a senior police official said.
